Drag kings and sea monsters, switchblade travellers and teacup ghosts—these stories and poems are a mixture of the mundane and the bizarre. Here you’ll find true tales of a son’s death and a girl’s first heartbreak, stories that range from the minutely personal to the transcendently universal.
Words are only words until the writer, like an alchemist, blends them with sweat and self-reckoning to create something out of the ordinary. A community of 62 writers combine their words in emerge 17.
emerge 17 includes contributions from TWS students currently being mentored by Kevin Chong (Fiction), Hiromi Goto (Speculative Fiction), JJ Lee (Creative Non-Fiction), Betsy Warland (Poetry) and program director Wayde Compton. New this year are contributions from students who completed the inaugural year of The Writer’s Studio Online (TWSO) program in June 2016 mentored by Eileen Cook (YA/Speculative Fiction), Claudia Cornwall (Creative Non-Fiction), June Hutton (Fiction) and Fiona Tinwei Lam (Poetry).
